Black and white view, looking down from coastal cliffs to twin open air pools, with an Art Deco pavilion to the left of frame. One pool contains a mix of people paddling and rowing boats. The pool to the right is surrounded by a crowd of people, possibly watching a swimming competition. A large number of people are sunbathing on the surrounding grassy area.
